Almond Cookies (杏仁饼)

Pin It Now!

I love nutty flavour of almond. When I read these almond cookies at Cass@揾到食 I knew I am going to bake it. This cookies dough is very simple to prepare, almost same as traditional peanut cookies. Mixing all ingredients till form wet dough and shape. You can shape the dough into round and decorate with a piece of almond flake, just like Cass did. Or roll out the dough and cut with cookies cutter. Make sure the dough has at least 1cm thickness. Thin cookies would not have the effect of soft and crumbly texture.
